With its four-year focus «Art, Science and Technology», Pro Helvetia fosters transdisciplinary exchange and collaboration between arts practitioners on the one hand and science and technology professionals on the other.
Various promotion formats (residencies, research grants, production grants, etc.) invite participants to explore the potential of mutual inspiration and open up spaces for new artistic approaches. The formats of this programme are developed in close cooperation with well-established scientific institutions and are aimed at Swiss practitioners from all arts disciplines.
- Connecting arts and culture practitioners with practitioners from the fields of science and technology.
- Active promotion of projects at the interface of art, science and technology by means of support in the planning, research and production stages
- Support in Switzerland and abroad for Swiss arts and culture practitioners working at the interface of art, science and technology

Pro Helvetia is launching its first podcast series as part of its «Art, Science and Technology» focus: each of the seven episodes addresses a specific theme and features an artist and a researcher who have worked together. The conversations consider the joys and challenges of transdisciplinary collaboration. Produced in English, the series has a global scope, both in terms of its speakers, who come from Pro Helvetia’s international network, and in terms of its audience.
